Hi Antoinette,    (01)

You can try UNESCO online thesaurus, which deals with various
multidisciplinary disciplines like education, culture, natural sciences,
social and human sciences, communication and information, etc. The URL is:
http://databases.unesco.org/thesaurus/    (02)

Hope you find the synonyms you are looking for.    (03)
